Tonight, Dh and I culled our first two roos. They are all clean and in the fridge waiting for the crock pot on Friday. I don't know anywhere else I can tell people and will be understood. I'm sure many of you here know the mixed feelings we have. Pride, satisfaction, grossed out, a little sad and very greatful. Everything I've read about feeling connected to my food is so true. I thanked our birds and know they were spoiled in life and respected in death. Thanks, people of BYC for your knowlege, support and taking the time to read this.
